honestly i would probably just make my own rig. i would probably use stainless steel for the inner stem since it is probably going to be the least maintenance. for the outer part of the stem i would probably raise some copper and silver pieces to make it look spiffy. probably around the 32inch mark. i would blow my own vase that was kind of wide at the bottom to be stable.

for a hose i would also probably just make my own but base if off a nammor.

coals ch nats, tongs mya tongs and bowl just an egyptian bowl except for tangiers i would use a vortex

I like the thread but I can't really answer it myself. I have two hookahs that I switch between based on mood and situation. A KM double trimetal and a Nour Karakol. Both are amazing hookahs and have their strengths and weaknesses. I feel much the same about hoses and bowls. It depends on the tobacco, the flavor and situation in which I am smoking.

Truly ideal? Well,

Hookah: KM Black Pear
Coals: Coconara
Hose: 112" Black Nammor, with black velvet cover, and a 18" handle
Tongs: 12" long, with spiked clasps, and a soft metal brush for use when ashing.
Bow: On hand, an extra-wide and shallow mod bowl, a black vortex bowl and a black Phunnel. I would be ready for whatever my pallet fancied.
Other stuff: A small coal carrier with an extra large footprint to help prevent knock overs. Mouthtips designed for comfort and maximum draw from a wide gauge hose. A large, stable, ultra-smooth gliding, hookah susan, so that in a circle, no one has to get up to pass the hose.

Mmm, think that's about it. Of course, that's just my ideal.
